I have been fishing for 35 years and specialize in targeting trophy inshore fish on artificial bait. I made the move to running charters to share my passion and local waters with clients. I love catching fish, love being on the water, and am excited to share both these things with as many people as possible! I count myself very lucky to be able to pursue my passion for a living. Let me guide you around the bays and flats of the Coastal Bend area in search of that fish of a lifetime!




two full days with larry bell

“A friend of mine and I had two full great days of fishing with Larry Bell.  We have been fishing one or two times a year in the bay for the past 20 years and consider ourselves pretty good fishermen.  The trip with Larry Bell seemed like adding a third good friend to the trip.  Larry has a great personality and made the trip fun.  He knows the water well in the Rockport-Aransas Pass area and knew lots of spots to fish that all produced fish.  He is also very good at bait selection and introduced us to a number of new baits and presentation techniques that produced fish when the bite seemed to slow.  We each averaged catching between 15-20 fish per day with enough keepers mixed in to make it a really great trip.  I had caught speckled trout up to 28 inches in the past and lost one on this trip that would probably been a lifetime trout for me….so close.  I highly recommend booking a trip with Larry Bell if you want to have a great time on artificial action.”

INCREDIble full day trip!

Had a beyond perfect full day fishing trip. All fishing done on artificial baits which is what made all the large redfish and trout caught even more special. Will definitely book another guided trip in the near future. If your looking to catch large reds and trout while learning all about the area and best techniques to catch quality fish than you have found your guide! I’m never usually one to post reviews but myself and another friend from Dallas enjoyed every moment of our fishing trip. There’s a lot of guide options out there but if you book a half day or full day trip with captain Larry Bell I can promise you a once in a lifetime wadefishing experience. He not only is a sincere hardworking guide that truly wants you to have the best day out on the water possible but also in a thoughtful and helpful manner makes you a better fisherman before you even realize it. Artificial action guide service is the way to go for your trip!
